"We hope our area customers will enjoy shopping at Dollar General's new location."

The Hubbard location, which is the former home of Key Bank, is the second Dollar General location in northern Marion County. Dollar General opened a store along Douglas Avenue in Gervais in December 2017.

The company has been aggressively expanding into Oregon in recent years, targeting small communities along the I-5 corridor that may not have access to larger retail stores. In the past year, Dollar General has opened new chains in Sweet Home, Drain, Creswell, Oakridge, Harrisburg, Philomath, Mill City and Jefferson. Additional locations in Aumsville, Dayton, Silverton, Independence and Estacada are also on the horizon.

Dollar General seeks to invest in the communities it serves through the Dollar General Literacy Foundation (DGLF), which awards grants each year to nonprofit organizations, schools and libraries within a 20-mile radius of a Dollar General store, Petkovic said.
